The liver is the largest internal organ performing several critical functions, and a liver transplant is usually referred to when it stops performing those functions because of chronic liver disease or sudden failure of a previously normal liver.

But the people waiting for a liver transplant exceeds the number of available donor livers. Hence, Manipal Hospitals welcomes family members or friends as they could make a good match and donate a portion of their liver. The human liver regenerates faster and returns to its original size soon after the surgery, and this makes living-donor liver transplant the best option rather than waiting for a deceased-donor liver to become available.
